fumble they got in a turn over he has been everything a first round pick should be. okay. i got to give the shanahans kudos or at least mike shanahan kudos, another shanahan draft pick from last year is perry riley, he made his first start of the year, this year. he was all over the field, at one point i mistaken him for fletcher because he was flying to the ball so often he tied the team lead with 9 tackles, had 7 solo tackles, qv hit and how about this, 4 tackles per loss that lead both teams, so perry riley if this is the type of play we are getting out of the lsu kid that could be a hidden gem for years to come. the last guy i thought was impressive, was the rookie from miami, leonard hanker son. huge hands, third round pick, huge physical guy reminds me of a michael irvin type player,
look michael irvin is in the hall of fame but body type he is running a lot of inside routes, he went up and got some balls like this one, hand extended to go up and get it, 8 catches, 106-yards, i will throw this out to you steve this is deep trivia, if you get this i will buy you lunch. can you tell me the last time a rookie receiver for the red skins went over 100-yards. >> i cannot. >> alison or tony want to play? lunch is on the line. 2001, rod gardener, ten years. >> i could not have come up there >> that is why i threw luncheon there, i knew you wouldn't get it. you also have roy who does a fine job as running back a rookie running back performing, rookie defense why not get a
rookie quarterback next year. i think they will. that is the point next year they -- >> hasn't been their mo. >> not been mike shanahan's mo i think they have to go down that route next year getting ryan kerrigan last year meant they couldn't get that first round draft pick they passed on sanchez a couple years ago that is looking to be a good move too. let's hope next year they invest it wisely in a rookie you will have growing pains, but also, if you get those young legs like you are seeing in defense with perry lie lee and kerrigan -- riley and kerrigan. they got to get more coverage for that quarterback. but they do have some pieces in place to be optimistic for some years down the road. this is not a quick fix problem. we will -- red skins fans will take their lumps this year i don't think this year there is a whole lot of optimism for the
rest of the 7 games, 3 and 6 and 5 game losing streak again we are trying to go glass half full you see some ability box there, where do i have hope those guys i just showed you. >> you want to follow the glass half full team, seven teams they have left to play, have a 7 and 30. dallas sunday, everything rides on that one if they want hope for second half of the year. >> thanks. sorry no body got lunch today. >> i am sure you are. he is getting the 11¢, z burger special. 56 degrees on a monday morning still ahead startling new report about diabetes and its impact on people worldwide >> number of sexual attacks on campuses in west virginia. and a musical composed by one of their own, holly morris

these breezy conditions continue through the course of the day. in fact i think it will pick up later as we get wind blowing up to 20, 25 miles an hour gusting that high during the afternoon today, right now sustained winds any where from 3 to 10 miles per hour. here is a look at the sentinel satellite radar this is what alison wants to know about, rain check it out. a long way away from here associated with a cold front, tracking along that front but as that front sinks south ward it could bring some rain showers to our area, perhaps by as early as tonight, i don't think during the day today although there will be enough clouds around tonight, overnight into tomorrow morning when we could see showers and later on in the week as well. so the forecast looks like this, partly sunny skies, breezy, warm, 69 degrees for your high your winds out of the south that i told you about. tonight, we do get the chance of rain showers popping up, i think particularly in the latter part of the evening
during overnight hours a 4 overnight lows, -- 54 overnight lows, breezy tonight. tomorrow better chance of showers during the day 67, wednesday your best chance of showers, during the day, so wednesday your best chance of rain this week, 60 degrees for your high we cool off behind that front highs 50s. overnight lows 30s. that is a look at what is happen being weather now more on this mornings rush hour traffic from julie. >> all right tony not looking so bad if you are travelling in from the north, off 95, 295, coming in on 29 headed south belt way is where we find the crew in sky fox, below speed as you travel 95, georgia avenue the crew hovering above 29 this is where you will find lanes are open no incidents to report as you continue around towards the mormon temple. back inside we will up the ride in the southeast and update this commute for you, southbound 295, howard road the accident blocking the left lane
delays southbound from pennsylvania avenue to the scene southbound 270, below speed out of german town, leaving 118 trying to get south, average speed, shady grove road down to 16 miles per hour. now to our cameras, you will find lanes are open, if you are travelling the outer loop of the belt way, leaving van dooren to telegraph road. inbound new york avenue, no incidents to report that is a check of your fox 5 on time traffic. crunch time for congressional debt super committee they have just over a week left to erase $1.2 trillion in deficits over a 10 year period. joining us now clifford rossi with the robert h smith school of business university of maryland good to see you. >> good to see you. >> down to 10 days and counting any closer to finding a middle ground here. >> if you listen to what is going on with the super committee we are still a bridge too far along this line, and it
really comes down to a couple things, there are key differences on the democratic side in terms of how much in terms of tax revenue need to be raised, versus republicans and republicans themselves are coming back saying we need to do something more around medicare and reduce those as well. >> sounds like the same problem we had when all of congress was trying to debate the issue. wasn't the idea to get these close members of congress out. >> you have to remember we are talking about elected officials when looking at all son touch weensies in play, 33% of our budget is coming from medicare and medicaid, 20% from social security and 20% defense department those are very difficult areas to cut and thing about for both sides because of again their constituencies and the fact we are looking at an election coming upon us. >> republicans took a step to try to look at tax cuts, while
it may have been noble it didn't benefit people other than the wealthy. >> that's correct what republicans are trying to do is reduce the marginal tax rate from 35% down to 28% but in some ways basically, take back some of the itemized reductions for those wealthier folks democrats look at that as hey you haven't gone far enough on this we need to see more on the table if you look at the two plans, 2.2 trillion for the democrats a trillion of that happens to be on the revenue side, 1.2 trillion for republican a half trillion only on the republican side. >> it is tough to hear what is happening for the group do you think we will get something done? get an agreement in the next 10 days? >> it is unlikely we will get the full 1.2 trillion they are shooting for end of the day we are likely to get some sort of partial agreement what we really ought to be shooting for is something other than simpson
bowls committee argued, earlier this year $4 trillion to try to avoid longer term issues we hay -- longer term issues we may be facing. the idea going back again is to try to get something done and just be done with it, i don't want to say an all or nothing kind of deal but that is what it was. can we do partial cuts? can we do something where we extend this or go back to try again how might that work. >> it is kind of death by a thousand cuts and then we only have to look over to europe to see how that is going. so from that stand point i think if we were to try to accomplish a larger scale we have an opportunity we don't get that often to put something in place that would be significant, and gain i am not hopeful we will get there. >> if nothing is done if we go to automatic cuts how big of a failure is that not only from a financial stand point but from
a psychological, stand point. >> it is bigger than i think the financial cut would be wall street has taken into account there will not be much here on the table by the time we get to thanksgiving end of the day it is much more psychological and adds to the fodder,. >> going back to the financial sector of things and how it impacts us in daily lives are we looking at things like mortgages? interest? >> that has come up i think more importantly i think you will see, for all of us things like the increasing age of medicare, when we can take that maybe slowing down, the cost increases of inflation adjustors for social security i think it would be unlikely to see the mortgage interest reduction taken away. >> we will talk more about it in the next ten days. >> indeed thank you. >> clifford rossi university of maryland. 7:37 a.m., 56 degrees now coming up next twilight fans

highest level when it comes to teaching our students. >> it is very important you have a good system combined with good professional development we want every teacher to improve professional skills from day one. we believe that decision ought to be made at the local level, consultation with the school board, administration and employee that is work there. >> let's talk where you are today, tc williams high school a lot of people saying this is a good model school when it comes to future of learning what do you find so special about tc? >> they have great traditions for a long time we cared about each student a diverse population some of the brightest, best, some of the most challenging kids you will find any where. going back to teacher evaluation i think those pun dents out there say we need tough evaluation systems, have it backward. there is no doubt great public schools of america have become great because of the people who teach in our classrooms who walk in our hallways, sit at the desk and do the work every single day for our students so
evaluations are an important%, a necessary part -- an important part of it, a necessary part, we have found that balance between appropriate evaluation, tough evaluation and great supports for all our staff members. >> let me stay with you for a second and talk about this as we move into the future one place your school has gotten high marks when it comes to dealing with technology as we move towards the future how do you see that changing in the classroom. oh, i think that technology is a tool and an important tool remarkable tool but the most important person and resource is still the teacher in the classroom we here at tc invested a lot of money so every single student has a laptop we recognize, particularly in a diverse community, such as ours over 56% of our students do noter do have free or reduced lunch and do not have computers at home. we need to break that digital divide so technology we give to high schoolthroughout the
district is part of their livea necessary part of their learning. >> i would like to go back to you for a second it is fan fastic when you have an -- fantastic when you have an opportunity where you have laptops available for students not all school districts have that luxury, how do you make sure those who don't have the facilities can keep pace with larger more affluent districts. >> it is a challenge the economic crisis has enveloped our country, state budget crisis is a way for them to balance the budget we have a real challenge in front of us as dr. sherman said it is important we level that playing field give every child that opportunity, for a great education and that is our job a collective responsibility, a shared responsibility, policy makers, parents, community educators. >> either one of you can answer the question, basically this is american education week that is what we are focussing on this
week beside it is two of you secretary duncan is there what do you go into a week like this hoping to accomplish how does that normally work out by the end of the week. well, i sent a note to all of our staff yesterday in response to an article i saw in the washington post about stress in fairfax county montgomery county we are no different here in alexandria city than school systems across the country finding that balance, finding the way that we encourage and support our teachers and yet expect the very best from them is a tough issue, of american education this week is a reminder a good pause for us to come back and look deeply at how we work with our teachers how we support them and how we never lose sight there are students even in this city dropping out not achieving at levels we want them to when we look at that balance we know the only way we will make a difference is by paying attention to individuals who care so deeply about our kids. >> when you look at this week, american education week did you
come in with specific goals in mind? >> i think it is important we look back over 90 years this is the 90th anniversary and the role education played. as a youngster i was told work hard get an education follow your dreams that is true for the future the second thing i want to do is acknowledge all the people who works at the school who reaches out to the parents and community it is time to celebrate what they do each and every day. >> gentlemen thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >> 8:24 a.m., alison. >> thank you so much. coming up next a look at stories making headlines this monday morning. another week, another quarterback change do you see a pattern? dave ross joins us -- we don't change our quarterback. >> no,. >> it is dave ross. >> maybe he should try out. we will check with holly too, live at a local high school where students are putting on a musical written by one of their own. stay with us

the quarterback position as to who is going to be the leader rest of the way he went with rex grossman yesterday, mixed results to say the least. defense stepped up played a pretty good ball game forced a couple turn overs, ryan kerrigan has done everything a first round draft pick should be. here is rex, had himself a day. >> that was nice. >> going over 100-yards first time rocky receiver -- rookie receiver since 2001. hanker son made some cuts, here is the dagger play, fourth quarter, first and goal third and goal, fourth and goal okay maybe first and goal you got a bad play check out of it. >> even a field goal you would have been down by one. >> ensuing drive was kind of that back breaker drive the defense, you know, a lot of people i saw on twitter said well, defense can't give up an adr you get demoralized for awhile they hung in there and couldn't make the plays, or
enough plays at the end that is why dolphins were dancing and red skins frowning at 3 and 6 now. and you know we've talked about the schedule on paper it looks easy for this team nothing looks easy when you watch that offence i talked to tony about this via text after the game yesterday it is like watching a team in quick sand their offence is in quick stand, two steps forward one major step back that holding penalty on a touchdown early that would have put them up 7-0. it was unnecessary and little things like that keep steam rolling forbig things and they are just not good enough to overcome it. a couple years ago they started 6 and 2. >> when they come off they really come off you can't figure out a way to put them back on. in the past we don't have to look far to see that with this team. is the locker room gone now? i don't think so.
we saw london fletcher we have to stick to what we do. i think that is a good thing just not translating to win. >> what is a little dispointing when you talk about the locker room, arapahoe tweeting after the game feels like the other teams have the w written down before they play it. >> that is tough when miami looks at you like home coming, as a one win team you got to go down and get that win,ed isly they did not as you said last -- win, sadly they did not. let me ask you this we talked about off field issues red skins in addition to poor play at times they have been hurt they have a lot of players not around could they lose trent or fred davis. >> i think they will get fined fred said yesterday he expected to get fined the testing was done after the lock out ended so whatever they had done prelock out carried over into the pretesting haven't heard from trent yet on this issue i
don't think it will be a suspension but a fine. really quick will, there has been a lot of claimer about tim tebow his day yesterday was bizarre to say the least in case you are not aware what he did in kansas city on the road his whole line for the day passing, two completed passes, out of eight attempts for 69- yards. >> and he won. >> he had this rushing here to put him up early here is the next one ready for this? this is a beautiful throw. >> hits him dead stride. >> 56-yard touchdown. game over. >> first time since 1974 a quarterback has had more rushing attempts than passing attempts is won the game. denver changed their offence to fit their quarterback and they are winning. >> he has a winning record as a starting quarterback going back the last season. >> some times you can't just stick with a system. good for them hopefully we have good news after dallas.
